AWB is constantly developing new products to meet animal feed industry demand. AWB Feed Wheat is high in protein and rich in gluten, an important binding agent in the extruded pelleting process. AWB Feed Wheat has good digestibility and provides the nutrients needed in a balanced ration such as amino acids, minerals and vitamins.
AWB is well placed to deliver barley in combination with wheat and other grain/pulse cargoes. Nutritionally, barley has a low fat content. The addition of heat stable enzymes increases nutrient digestibility and promotes better growth rates in pigs and poultry production.
Australian canola is ideal for producing oil for cooking and as a food additive. Canola meal, a by-product from processing, can be incorporated into stockfeed rations as a valuable protein source.
AWB is the leading marketer of oats in Australia. This course feedgrain can be processed or fed directly to stock. Oats have a high fibre and fat content.
Triticale is a hybrid cereal grain derived from crossing wheat with cereal rye. It has the nutritive value of wheat, with a similar crude protein content. As a softer grain, it is also easier to mill. Triticale's high lysine content, good protein digestibility and mineral balance make it suitable as a replacement for, or a supplement to, other cereal grains in stockfeed rations.
Australian sorghum, with its generally higher protein and lower moisture levels, compares favourably with sorghum from other countries, including the US and Argentina. Sorghum grown in Queensland is predominantly a red variety type, although some white sorghum is grown in central and southern Queensland.
This pulse is an alternative source of protein and contains levels of energy comparable to soybean and meat and bone meals. Pulses have higher levels of lysine than cereals. They also possess high digestible energy, giving growth performance similar to soybean meal.
Lupins can be utilised in a wide range of stockfeed rations. It is high in protein and crude fibre content, with a low starch content. Energy values are comparable with field peas. Australian lupins have low alkaloid levels. Removing the seed coat can increase protein content by approximately 13% and increase its attractiveness for inclusion in poultry rations.
